Beyond What You Expect

     I speak to You of My will and My way. Is this situation, is it too hard for Me to fix? Can I not make a way for you beyond what you expect? How easy your heart faints when things are out of your control and do not go as expected. How easy your heart faints when this or that breaks to get you out of your routine.

     Can I not use these to wake you up and set you on a new path, give you a new way to look at things, and even use these disappointments to bring about new blessings in your life? Had I not removed some things you would have simply plodded on the same path doing the same thing when I called you to so much more. Trust Me without wavering, trust Me in delight.

Proverbs 3:5-6

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight.”

Isaiah 55:6-13

“Seek the Lord while he may be found; call on him while he is near. Let the wicked forsake their ways and the unrighteous their thoughts. Let them turn to the Lord, and he will have mercy on them, and to our God, for he will freely pardon. ‘For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,’ declares the Lord. ‘As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is my word that goes out from my mouth: it will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it. You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and hills will burst into song before you, and all the trees of the field will clap their hands. Instead of the thorn bush will grow the juniper, and instead of briers the myrtle will grow. This will be for the Lord’s renown, for an everlasting sign, that will endure forever.'”
